Fan blinded after wayward shot at Ryder Cup


//

A female spectator who was struck in the face by a wayward shot from three-time major winner Brooks Koepka at the Ryder cup has lost use of her right eye.

Corine Remande was rushed to hospital when Koepka’s tee shot at the sixth hole par-4 veered into the crowd at Le Golf National near Paris, France.

On Tuesday Remande said doctors informed her that she had lost vision in her right eye.

"It happened so fast, I didn't feel any pain when I was hit," Corine Remande, 49, told AFP.

"I didn't feel like the ball had struck my eye and then I felt the blood start to pour. The scan on Friday confirmed a fracture of the right eye socket and an explosion of the eyeball."

Koepka, 28, was visibly shaken and rushed to Remande’s aid before giving her a signed glove as she was taken away.

“It looked like it hurt. It’s not a good feeling. It’s hard to control a golf ball, especially for 300 yards, and a lot of times the fans are close to the fairway. You can yell ‘fore’ but it doesn’t matter from 300 yards. You can’t hear it.”

Remande is considering legal action.
